City & Financial Global are delighted to let you know that HRH The Countess of Wessex, GCVO, Chair, The Women’s Network Forum and Global Ambassador, 100 Women in Finance’s Next Generation initiative, will be opening The Vote 100 Women in Business Summit, which is being held in partnership with the Women’s Network Forum, the Government Equalities Officethe Women’s Business Council, UN Women UK and 100 Women in Finance in London on 17th April 2018.

The Summit will bring together a platform of distinguished women, drawn from a range of business sectors, to discuss the key issues facing British business today, including the critical importance of diversity in the boardroom and among senior management. Given that 2018 is the centenary of the 1918 “Representation of the People Act’, which gave women the vote for the first time, the conference opens with a session that reviews how female leadership has changed over the last century.

The event builds on the success of the previous editions of the Women in Business and the Women in Finance summits, which both attracted 250+ senior delegates across the industries, government officials and regulators from across the UK and beyond.

The forum’s interactive format will offer attendees an opportunity to have a diverse and well-informed dialogue about the most effective ways of getting men to join in their efforts to address the gender imbalance at all levels of their organisation, as well as making sure that gender diversity remains high on the business agenda despite all the other pressures firms are facing.

Other key topics include:
